TEF Launches Problem-Solving Resource Site for Students


It shouldn't come as a surprise to our readers to hear that students often make poor decisions based on emotion rather than information (as opposed to us adults, who always make informed decisions). But the Tregoe Education Forum, a non-profit out of Princeton, NJ, has launched a new online resource to help educators teach skills that can help lead to better decision making.

The new site, Your Take, provides resources for students, parents, and educators to help instill the skills students need to make better decisions. It includes blogs that pose problems for students to solve and a tool called SCAN that walks students through a four-step process for making decisions. Other features include:

  • A library of more than 120 lessons;
  • The ability for teachers to upload their own lessons;
  • Downloadable materials for use in the classroom; and
  • Various customization features for lessons and other materials.

Your Take operates on an annual license, which runs $299 for unlimited site access. District subscriptions are also available. A free trial can also be accessed on the site.
